Houston-based Legacy Fighting Alliance announced that it will be taking its cage and several of its fighters to Missouri on Sep. 1. Headlining LFA 21 will be a pair of rising light heavyweights ready to explode onto the next level when the promotion visit is the state for the first time.
Undefeated Kyle Noblitt (8-0) is one of the most highly-touted prospects in the heavier divisions in the sport. The American has wrecked shop since turning pro two years ago and has laid waste to everybody he's faced at both 205 pounds and heavyweight. A product of Missouri, Noblitt has finished all but one opponent inside the distance, but is expected to have a stiff challenge when he takes on Brazil’s Antonio Paulo Branjao in the main event.
Branjao (4-0) is set to make his U.S. MMA debut after tearing apart foes in his native land. “Montanha” moved up to heavyweight to compete on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil Season 3, where he reached the quarterfinals.
The LFA 21 co-feature will see Katy Collins taking on a flyweight opponent to be determined. T.J. Brown will collide with Trey Ogden at lightweight as well.
The LFA 21 main card will be televised live on AXS TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. Additional bouts will be announced soon.
